    Kuiu attack pants vs. guide pants

    Anyone out there own both pair? My primary condition for these pants will be late October thru the month of November and just a bit concerned the guide pant will be too much.
    Thanks.

    I've heard that the attack pant is more August- September early season pant and the guide pant for later seasons don't quote me on that it's just what I've seen other individuals discuss about on this topic

    I am not a tall guy, but I ran the Attacks all last season. They are light, stretchy, comfortable, and well-made. They breathe extremely well and are quite durable. I used them from the early season through November snows.

    After using Sitka Ascents for years, I prefer the Attacks.

    How was running them thru November? Ever wish you had just a little heavier version?

    They were great. The DWR works well on the snow. There were a couple of times I thought a heavier pant would be nice for glassing in the snow, but the Attacks handled it way better than I expected. I am on the fence myself on picking up some Guides for the last couple weeks of season.

    The Attacks are the best overall hunting pants I have used so far.

    Ok.. thx. If they had brown in guide it would be done. Dont really love wearing camo during rifle season. Just personal and shouldn't carry any value but does

    I would recommend the Guide pants only if it were going to be real cold and you weren't going to be very mobile. Otherwise, the Attacks and a 185 weight Merino base layer to throw on when needed is an extremely versatile combo that should get you well into the late seasons. Like Matt said, the DWR is very good on the Attacks. I was swimming in my Attack shorts (homemade) yesterday and it's impressive how the water beads up and rolls off even after being submerged.
